against chuck hagel, what is it about? is it for show? is it about something hagel said in the cloakroom? is it the unfairness of vietnam itself, that some went and some didn't? is it about johnson's inability to win that war or end it? what burns so deeply in john mccain these days? it seems to excite those who knew nothing about vietnam but want to replay it. we dig into the deep well of resentment burning in john mccain's patriotic heart. a resentment not against the north vietnamese who imprisoned and tortured him all those years, not against george w. bush and his political henchmen who tried to stain mccain's reputation back in 2000, but against a guy who fought against fear and rallied against wounds just like he did in the same army of america's long nightmare in vietnam, chuck hagel. a nightmare, by the way, whose flashbacks must haunt still the mind and heart of john sidney mccain. i'm joined by david corn and joy reid, both msnbc contributors. both of you, sir and lady, are younger than me, but i'm younger than me, but i'm convinced we're watching a flashback. watch this. here
. but president obama's nominee for defense secretary, chuck hagel, he does have majority support in the senate. what happened today is that a minority of that body, the republicans, decided that they were going to block him anyway. never happened before. they filibustered a cabinet nomination. in the past over the years there have been a couple of token efforts at maybe doing this in the past, that got a handful of votes, didn't actually slow down or stop anything. but the minority actually blocking the nomination, that is a whole new thing. this is a fresh hell in american politics. and that is why before today even republican senators said it would be nuts to do this. before today these senators, these republicans, for example, all said, yeah, listen, i might be opposed to chuck hagel for defense, i might vote no on his nomination, but i'm not going to blow up 220-something years of precedent and filibuster the guy. i'm not going to block there being a vote on him. we've never done that before. republican senators john mccain, ray blunt, roger wicker, lindsey graham, susan murkowski, all the
these senators, these republicans for example all said yeah, listen. i might be opposed to chuck hagel for defense. i might vote no on his nomination, but i'm not going to blow up 220-something years of precedent and filibuster the guy. i'm not going to block there being a vote on him. we've never done that before. republican senators john mccain, roy blunt, roger wicker, susan collins, lisa murkowski, all of these said before today that they might vote no on chuck hagel, but they wouldn't block a vote from the minority. they wouldn't filibuster. well, today when push came to shove, it was only susan collins and lisa murkowski who kept their word. the others said they wouldn't filibuster and then they did it anyway. john mccain, row wicker, lindsey graham. they all did it. senator graham says he does not want his filibuster today to be thought of as a filibuster even though that's what it is. he says he prefers to think of what he did is blocking the nomination because he wants to use it as leverage to get more information out of the administration on the president's birth certificate,
on television. today in a 58-40 cloture voted. they blocked chuck hagel being the sex -- secretary of defense. next the hour long debate on the nomination. they said they will not vote for cloture today, i think it's too bad. there's been more than enough time to read the additional speeches that have been coming in. the argument raced beyond that i know has do with the payment an equity fund that was received has been fully explained. as a highly reputable fund that senator hagel was an adviser to like many other reputable people. i think the continuation what amounts to filibuster is too bad when there's a secretary of defense who is leafing to go back to california. we need to have our new secretary of defense in place given the circumstances in this world. we have a budget crisis in this country, our scwesser is confronting us. that's sequester will have a damaging effect on the deference department, on the men and women in uniform. and on the programs, the equipment, the training that they need to be ready for any kind of contingency. so the delay in having a vote on cloture, to me is a
-level officers and enlisted that are so important to the leadership of our military and chuck hagel's leadership and commitment will be critical to that task. i have met with chuck hagel privately, i've asked him tough questions about iran and israel. i'm satisfied on those points that he will advise the president in according to with -- in accord with those policies but even more important i am struck by his passion, the intensity of his commitment to our men and women in uniform. his caring about them is indicated in so many ways. spontaneously and strongly in his testimony, as well as his private conversations. he will make sure that sexual assault in the military, the epidemic and scourge of rape and assault against men and women who serve and sacrifice for this country will be stopped, that there will be, in fact, zero tolerance not only in word but in deed. and his viewing, for example, of the documentary "invisible war," his understanding that this kind of misconduct is an outrage never to be even implicitly condoned and to be treated as a criminal offense, the most extreme kind of predat
carthyism and this weird unconnectedness, attacking chuck hagel, for example, because no one will give us info or anyone info about the benghazi situation even though hagel wasn't even in the government when benghazi happened. sick stuff. and it seems to be growing in inverse proportion to obama's popularity. the better he looks, the worse these characters, inhofe, cruz, mccain, and lindsey graham, are determined to look. did you notice the smile on john boehner's face sitting up there behind the president during the state of the union? if you did, you're imagining things. so afraid of the hard hating right of republicans these days of every stripe, even boehner's scared to death of looking like he might like something barack obama had to say. to do that is to risk political death in these days. let's go at it. our guests are joy reid of the grio and michael steele, former chairman of the republican national committee. both are msnbc analysts and good ones. let's take a look at this. is this delay on the hagel vote about playing for time hoping new information comes out about them?

of chuck hagel to be secretary of defense. while we were home last week, i had the opportunity to watch the senate confirmation hearing, and i was dismayed by the way many of the republicans on that hearing chastised mr. hagel. mr. hagel is a man of integrity. i -- the question from one of the senators about, do you think the surge worked, and senator hagel was such he didn't want to give him a direct answer. i would have said no, it didn't work. 1,200 americans killed. i don't know how many iraqis. look at the country today. it is totally falling apart. that was a question towards senator hagel. . the iraq war was very unnecessary. it was manufactured by the previous administration, and there was a marine general, greg newbold, who actually wrote an article in "time" after the war started and one of the points he made that i'm going to share with you, mr. speaker, is some of the missteps included the distortion of intelligence in the buildup to the war. the distortion of intelligence in the buildup to the war. in the history of washington, if ever our government needed integrity, it's

been writing about chuck hagel and the attacks on chuck hagel. you can disagree with any nominee of the president, but the chuck hagel stuff ended up going over the line don't you think? >> yeah, in a big way. i did write last week that i wonder if he's worth all of this trouble, because the only utility of a republican defense secretary for a democratic president is to make the republicans in the senate and -- and the congress -- but particularly the senate go along with stuff like budget cuts, but if hagel has lost that utility, then what good is he? however, since then, bill they have gone a little nut-so and they are doing this stuff that prove that you didn't take money from these people and this right-wing website that i don't even want to name prove that you didn't say what we heard you might have said in a speech in 2010 -- >> bill: and he was taking money from terrorists -- >> yeah and all of these people. so now this is turning into a quasi -- >> bill: but the flip side is all of these republicans are going to need stuff from chuck hagel. >> o
